Mobile sawmill available for hire – Moretonhampstead

Produce beautiful, economical timber, custom cut from your trees.

  • Cut a great deal of timber in a day at a fraction of the retail cost of sawn wood.
  • Reliable sawmill with small-kerf blade for less wastage – see below for specifications.
  • Environmentally responsible – your own timber is locally sourced, reducing ‘wood miles’; you know the provenance of your timber, and how the woodland is managed.
  • Practical – timber can be produced to the exact specifications of a planned project for craftspeople and DIY.
  • Re-cut old beams, railway sleepers or seasoned hardwood tree trunks to reclaim timber from otherwise wasted materials.
  • Produce local raw materials with beauty and history, for products with added value.
  • The satisfaction of self-sufficiency: using your own trees in your projects – useful, beautiful, and unique.
  • For those wood owners affected by Phytophthora ramorum, it is still possible to cut and transport timber from affected trees (once the wood is debarked). Some owners of larch woodland in affected areas are now felling and processing their timber before this disease is detected in their woodland.
  • The offcuts also have value – they can be used as rustic pieces, slabwood or firewood.

Specifications:

I use a WoodMizer LT15 mobile bandsaw. WoodMizer are a long-standing, international company that have a reputation for producing reliable machinery. My sawmill has the addition of electronic setworks for millimetre precise cuts every time; I can programme the sawmill setworks to cut any size timber you wish, down to a minimum size of 2mm per board.

  • Sawmill head and bed will arrive on a trailer and can be set up anywhere with 4×4 access and a flat space next to the log pile. Under some circumstances it can access areas other sawmills can’t, as it can be dismantled.
  • The mill will cut logs up to 5 metres (16.4 feet or 5.46 yards) in length and 70 cm (27.6 inches) wide.
  • The blade kerf is only 2 mm (0.07 inches) so you get more timber from your logs – this is in comparison to the other major mobile mill available, the LucasMill, which typically has a blade kerf of 5 to 7 mm.
  • My sawmill is suitable for the needs of private individuals and small businesses and is priced accordingly.
